COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Two people are in custody after leading police on a high-speed chase through Columbus Thursday afternoon.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says their airplane clocked the vehicle at 88 mph in a 70 mph zone on I-70 at mile-marker 77 in Madison Co. A trooper tried to pursue the vehicle, but backed off near the Franklin Co. line.

Troopers called Franklin County Sheriff's deputies and Columbus Police to alert them about the situation.

The driver continued to refuse to stop and hit speeds of more than 100 mph at times. The chase headed south and onto SR 104 before the driver exited at Alum Creek Dr.

Stop sticks were deployed on Alum Creek Dr near Williams Rd. The driver kept going and got onto I-270 where he headed west before spinning out just west of Alum Creek Dr.

Both people in the vehicle fled on foot, but were eventually caught by law enforcement near some railroad tracks in the area.
